  • What is this mystery plant?

    If you are a cocker spaniel, you may not want to look at this photo!

    Here’s a plant species with a kind of brutal winter beauty, even when dry and dead, the stems topped with a constellation of brown, spiny burs. You might have a feeling this is a plant that wants to spread itself around, if it can. And it wants you to help.

  • Could you be depressed and not know it?

    By Linda Arnold

     

    You may be feeling “out of sorts.” Or maybe nothing is jazzing you. 

    You can’t quite put your finger on it, although there’s a cloud hanging over you. And it doesn’t seem to be lifting anytime soon.

    For the last two months I’ve been writing about “Med instead of Meds for Better Health,“ a way of eating that can help reduce your chances of a chronic illness and needing to take medication.

  • Moderation is the right approach for fertilizing turf

    As one of the old guys in the gardening world, I’ve seen lots of changes in the last 35 years as conventional wisdom evolves and changes our recommendations. Pruning flush cuts, tree wraps and planting holes filled with Black Cow have all gone the way of the mammoth and the dodo bird. It seems our long-standing recommendation to wait until mid- to late April to fertilize warm-season grasses may be next on the scrap heap of horticultural history.
